Foreign Ministry's reaction to French parliamentarian's visit to Khankendi


French officials making an illegal visit to Khankendi will be banned from entering Azerbaijan. This was stated by the Spokesperson for the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry, Leyla Abdullayeva, answering a question about the illegal visit of a member of the French National Assembly François Pupponi to the Azerbaijani city of Khankendi.

Abdullayeva noted that it is not the first time that a member of the French National Assembly François Pupponi makes an illegal visit to the territory of Azerbaijan.

'Pupponi is distinguished by a tough anti-Azerbaijani position. For violation of Azerbaijani legislation, the name of the French deputy is on the list of foreign citizens who are prohibited from entering our country. A ban on entry to Azerbaijan will also be imposed on the mayor of the French city of Arnouville, the representative of the city of Sarcelles, who accompanied the deputy of the French National Assembly on this illegal visit. This irresponsible and provocative behaviour of French representatives is unacceptable and undermines efforts to build peace in the region after conflict,' said Abdullayeva.
